The effect of ortho-substitution on the efficacy of biphenyls in mediating electron transfer from lithium

Abstract:

A systematic study into the effect of increasing ortho-substitution of a range of biphenyls with respect to their ability to mediate electron transfer from lithium metal is described. A synthetic investigation has demonstrated the requirements for effective mediation. The electrochemical reduction of the mediators and of the two substrates was studied in THF, 0.1 M TBAP, at platinum microelectrodes both at room temperature and at low temperature. The formal potentials, Ef0 extracted from the ...
